An opportunity to share your experiences!

A new study aims to analyze the implications of open access with a qualitative
approach. Focus will be on what changes can be noticed by the single researcher
with the shift from non-OA publishing of research articles to self-archiving.
The study is a part of a research project on different aspects of open access
at Uppsala University, in Uppsala, Sweden. The project is managed by Urban
Ericsson, PhD, Lecturer at Institution of Library and Information Science
(urban.ericsson at abm.uu.se).

I wish to reach researchers from all disciplines, with experience of publishing
research articles in both traditional non-OA channels and of self-archiving in
institutional and/or subject based open archives. The survey will take
approximately 20 minutes to answer. Please note that all answers will be
handled with confidentiality. Single answers might be quoted anonymously.

To the survey: https://survey.mamut.com/s?s=20424
To contribute, please send your answer before the 2nd of March 2011. The more
contributors, the more valuable the study. Please feel free to promote and
distribute the survey to your fellow colleagues.

Take this opportunity to reflect over how the changing research community and
publication processes have affected you and your research! If you have any
questions or comments, contact me at:

Thank you for your contribution!
